House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says Weiner is in need of help and should seek some "without the pressures of being a member of Congress."

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz released a statement today saying, "It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign. The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner's continued service in Congress is untenable."

She continued, "This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House -- and for the good of all, he should step aside and address those things that should be most important -- his and his family's well-being."

Just goes to prove a mental sexual deviant can lie his way into office and then this same mental case passes laws that affect my life, my families life and others?

He should not only be fired he should be locked away in a Muslim prison.

Based upon the apparent standard set by other politicians:

As a nation founded, unquestionably, upon Judeo-Christian Principles,
The House of David calls for the immediate en masse resignations
of ALL "governmental" officials - "elected" and "appointed" -
who have willfully, knowingly, and openly engaged in immoral
and/or unnatural activities or practices during their official
tenure. WITHOUT, EXCEPTION.

Translation: They now have some juice on him that he won't be able to overcome. Wasn't it only a couple of days ago she was claiming that they were satisfied with their inquiry on the guy?

Pelosi said yesterday, Weiner stays.
Pelosi says today, Weiner goes.
What happened in between?
An underage girl.

The direct private twitter messages may not have been inappropriate to the girl, with the explicit nature of the photos and texts he sent to other women, it just doesn't look good for the DNC in an upcoming election year.

Sociopaths are Sad    

This pathetic Weiner is desperately trying to hold onto his job. Have any of you seen his education and professional history? It's pathetic. He only has a bachelor's degree from some unknown school, no professional distinctions....nothing really. This job is his life.

He gets a salary he would NEVER get were he working for the private sector with his pathetically non-accomplished resume. He gets slutty tail he would NEVER get were he working for the private sector in some dead-end job. And he knows it. Which is why he is DESPERATELY trying to hold on to his job aka his mojo.

I'm very merciful as a person but I gotta say....I'm really enjoying seeing him squirm and KNOWING he won't weather this storm. No effing way. He's done.

His own party has abandoned him and is making an example out of him of how NOT to behave. His own party is sacrificing him. He has nothing left. In a few months, when a new scandal will take the top spot...Huma will quietly begin divorce proceedings and his fake ethnic trophy wife will leave him. I wouldn't be surprised if Huma is plotting on how to extricate herself from this situation unscathed....ASAP.

Politics is a dirty game.

Justsaying-

The picture of the bulge wasn't sent to willing, consenting people. It was delivered to the twitter feed of all his followers. The guy showed an incredible lack of judgement, not to mention a pathetic lack of understanding about the way twitter works.

Along with the explicit photos and texting he did with the other women, it's become an embarrassment for the DNC in an upcoming election year.
